Just a note to balance the
conversation, I listened to the spot and truthfully there is
nothing in it that goes against the underwriting regulations. It
simply tells you what the movie is about, includes some soundbites
and tells where to get more information. There are many
non-commercial stations, especially PBS stations, that air these
kind of announcements every day. I could see how Focus on the
Family would think that this is a good production to promote.
While many of you may have stricter standards for underwriting,
and you do not want to air announcements that sounds like
commercials, I do not think anyone would be risking a fine by
playing this announcement on the air.
